Aceleron to repurpose Eco Charger batteries to help cut e-waste

Aceleron, the UK developer of reusable battery solutions, is working with Eco Charger, an electric all terrain vehicle provider, to repurpose 90% of batteries for resuse through a buy-back scheme.

While the electric vehicle revolution, predicted to reach sales of up to 44 million units by 2030, according to data from the International Energy Agency (IEA), will be a positive move for decarbonisation, it could also create over 11 million tonnes of battery waste each year globally within the next 20 years.

Dr Amrit Chandan, chief executive and co-founder of Aceleron, said: “By designing batteries for the circular economy from the outset, we can prevent mountains of battery waste from being created worldwide.

“The decarbonisation of transport is critical, but we are currently solving one sustainability issue while ignoring another. Waste is the elephant in the room.”

Aceleron’s batteries, manufactured in the UK, are designed to be repaired, upgraded, reused and recycled.

Aceleon’s batteries also use management software, allowing remote performance monitoring to enhance battery life. This allows Aceleron to monitor and replace or upgrade components when they degrade or when improved products are available.

The company said regular servicing can multiply battery lifespan as much as eight times, from three to 25 years.

Jon Hourihan, Eco Charger chief executive, said: “By choice or by law all industries will soon have to decarbonise. Aceleron’s batteries demonstrate that tailored engineering can provide low-carbon solutions across all e-mobility scenarios.”
